The Unseen Frankie Howerd (1 x 90′) – Twenty years after his death, never-before-seen footage of Frankie Howerd is revealed in a new documentary. Alongside the clips from classic shows the programme will unveil professional and personal archive film and audio that has never been broadcast – from pilots, to home movie footage, to unseen material from his live stand up show. In addition, the film lifts the lid on his vast collection of personal correspondence. From Sir Laurence Olivier to Howerd’s many fans, everyone wrote to Frankie – and Frankie always took the time to write back. A range of contributors are interviewed, including some of the comedian’s most famous fans as well as the people who were closest to him, such as his former agent and collaborators.
